Hand embroidery classes with Dawn Ireland



A lovely friendly and relaxed class where we look at a different embroidery stitch or technique each week. We practise and experiment with the stitches using a range of threads and fabrics. The sessions give an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the gentle art of hand embroidery. Over time you will build up your knowledge having created a wide range of lovely samples to refer to. My studio has a big selection of embroidery and textile books, stitch magazines and images to look through for inspiration, as well as embroidery samples to look at during the sessions. . Tuesday mornings, 10am-12.30. £20 per session includes all materials, refreshments and snacks.

What's included in the price?

All materials, Fabrics, threads, sewing needles, buttons, ribbons, beads, trims. Hot and cold drinks, snacks.

I am a mixed media textile artist with a BA (hons) degree in Textiles, specialising in Embroidery. I have been working as a professional artist for 28 years, and work from my studio in Nether Green, Sheffield. I love teaching and helping others gain confidence through creating. In experimenting with embroidery and mixed media textiles, my aim is to inspire, encourage and support students from beginners to those with experience. I also love baking, gardening and have three cats.
